Following the review, someone at Florsheim finally woke up and decided to send a replacement shoe.Had it been done as a result of sending the original email with several detailed pictures of the defective shoe, it would have been a highly positive reflection for their principles and level of customer service.
As it turned out to be, it left a negative feeling, resulting from the multiple emails offering increasing fractional, yet insulting discounts. Customer Service shows a Company's principles and being proactive to "ASSIST" and to convey confidence in doing the "right things", rather than just reacting to public complaints to simply try and minimize bad publicity.
I would think Florsheim needs a "Public Relations-101" freshman level course to figure it all out.But thanks anyway for finally getting it right, even though it took much more effort than it should have been.

My favorite shoe, a Florsheim casual men's shoe, suddenly had its rubber sole disintegrate by having chunks of rubber break off, making the shoe useless.It is some years old, but had very light use and is in otherwise excellent condition.
I have older shoes and never had one where the sole simply disintegrated due to age. After contacting the company's Customer Service and forwarding detailed pics of the defective shoe, I requested a replacement pair of a similar style and instead was offered a less than 50% discount for another pair.
What a company making defective products and being unwilling to stand behind them and offer a replacement when presented with the facts of the defect.- BUY YOUR SHOES from another manufacturer, Florsheim does not deserve our confidence and business.
